This is my first time with a real disaster. I am in such a sweat because I recently just got my computer back, completely reformatted from geeksquad due to a faulty hard drive caused by improper shutdown...

I believe it was yesterday when I was prompted to update my Java and I thought it was trusted, so I guess I accepted... I really didn't notice anything yesterday/last night but today the pop ups were in full force. My computer had locked up when I was on photobucket and the java icon in the taskbar popped up and loaded, and then I started getting random popups. I have spysweeper and norton antivirus techcenter edition. My spysweeper after a scan detected Adware Virtumonde and my norton was going crazy with the lower right notifications about detecting and fixing a trojan, which I believe is called Prunett.exe. I really want to take care of these issues without having to reformat again and going through that tedious process of reloading all my information and retrieving particular programs.

The popups come when I start doing a search on google... and spysweeper will quarantine virtumonde every time I run the scan... I ran norton in safe mode earlier and it didn't detect the prunett.exe, just 1 measely tracking cookie. I did a search for files and folders via the start > search .... i typed in "pru" and 3 instances of the prunett came up, one being prunett.exe

Please help me! Thank you

Hi,let's see what we can get back from an MBAM scan.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

Just to add to this, I just did a search again for files/folders "prunett" and the prunett.exe no longer comes up, however the other 2 instances called PRUN.TMP-0E48F37A.pf and PRUNNET.EXE-0D905460.pf still come up ... both of these locations are C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch

I appreciate you replying and keeping up with my problem... I am going to call it a night very soon so I don't think I'm going to run the next step of instructions tonight, and I work 9-6 tomorrow... but if you don't mind, I want to ask a few questions/concerns...

I have been looking at other people's posts and similar issues as well as other problems... I am afraid to check to see if this google search redirection virus is also attacking me... how bad is this virus that I have?

Thanks
Ryan

I will try to post my logs sometime tomorrow, if not, will do it on Sunday.

Is BC still performing incorrectly? Have you shut down and reopened the browser(s) and checked?

Oh you have the same thing I have. They are helping me remove it from my computer as we speak. I used all the scanners and the virus is STILL affecting my computer. Are your images on the internet distorted? Because mine are. At one point is started blocking websites and redirecting my google searches. I had to use a proxy site to browse the internet to aleast fix that and the issue of me having popups. This thing is stubborn. Even after I deleted the prunnet.exe from the registry I was still having problems with my computer. I hope you get your computer fixed. let me know how it goes.

phew, well I just rebooted and I still had the same problem... but then I thought, let me just clear my browsing history and cache in firefox real quick... and restart the browser... and to my surprise, everything returned to normal.

how did those logs I posted look?

I had the guts to go to google and searching and clicking on a few links... no redirections (cross fingers) and no pop ups

I just finished reading some other people's problems and noticed that they mention that their windows firewall gets turned off... so I just checked mine .... start > control panel > windows firewall and it was turned off... do I just turn it back on at this point? Is there anything else for me to do? Is my computer clean again?

Thanks
Ryan

Hello things look good here. Here another file cleaner like thae cooke and cache cleaner.
Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

If there are no more issues or signs of infection then..
Now you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok"
  • Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.
Vista Users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point and Disk Cleanup.

So you want me to run ATF cleaner again? Should I manually put back on my windows firewall? Should I run another scan with my Spy Sweeper to see if it detects virtumundo still?
